As you can see, the special features are still being worked out, but the retailer can confirm there will be new interviews with John Carpenter and Sandy King Carpenter. The item also comes with an exclusive 18” x 24” rolled poster of the newly-commissioned artwork by Devon Whitehead, but only if you order it from Shout! Factory directly. Its North American street date is slated for September 24th.

In addition to his duties as director, Carpenter also provided the music score for the film as well.
